Charging Trump of treason for not standing by the US intelligence community at Helsinki is like lobbing Chinese firecrackers into a mob fleeing a cinema fire. The tragicomedy is breathtaking. If guilty, he would hardly confess to it on live TV to a world audience. Unless he had his political asylum papers ready. If innocent, he would hardly endorse his tormentors. Unless he had his lunatic asylum papers ready. Damned if he did, damned if he didn’t. Dmitry Orlov takes a power drill to what goes for intelligence in the US intelligence community. It should resonate with those calling for Trump’s head as they have been saying the same before he came along. I said should, not would. Hate, like love, can be blind. Orlov is perhaps too polite limiting his commentary to the intelligence community.
